Introductions
« on: April 03, 2004, 10:47:22 PM »
Many of us already know each other, but many others are new.  Feel free to use this thread to post a little something about yourself to share with the world.

Please try to limit it to introductions only, however.  Feel free to welcome new members, but do it via Private Messages.  Otherwise, this thread will turn into 20 pages in no time.  ;)

Otherwise visit the Ashford City forum and ask the mods, because Barren knows all. Barren is good. Barren is wise.

Well, you've probably all noticed me lurking about from time to time, so I suppose I'm not as much of a n00b as some.  Come to think of it though, I don't think any of you know my name.  Kerazee.

Hi my name is jester......and I surf. :(

Of vaguely humanoid form, I am old enough to qualify as two members and most of you who don't know me prob never will anyway. I am here to avoid hassle in general and work in particular so don't pin me down on any project apart from casual translation perhaps....and that takes ages. ;) Having no particular story of my own to tell I am drawn to introduction threads like the provebial moth to Ctr+C this story.

Hello,

I'm currently not working on a Haer'Dalis romance mod over at The Gibberlings Three, and I'm also not helping Icelus with a couple of related quests for UB.

To keep the negative thing going; I don't like the smileys you've got here, so you'll have to figure out for yourselves when I'm serious and when I'm not (hint: I'm not). I also don't like scrolling text and wouldn't mind at all if the person who invented the "move" tag was forced to spend the rest of his days looking at the result of his creation.

Nice to meet you all.

Well, if things get out of hand with moving text, I won't hesitate to go on a post-editing/locking rampage.  That's just the type of reckless, inconsiderate loudmouth that I am.

Howdy! 

Will be 40 this year.  Live in Indiana - southern part - notice the Howdy.  Share the place with 3 cats, 6 German Shepherds, and a husband.

Played PnP D&D and have taken up computer version now.  Made it through BG1, Soa,Tob, Icewind Dale 1 & 2.  Active here and at Interplay's board.  Lurk on a bunch of others.

Most interested in UB at the moment although the Delainy mod and the Tiefling Sisters look right up my alley.

Real name is Michelle
If it is screwed up, it is probably my fault!

Greetings all, I'm another lurker who finally got up enough nerve to register and show myself. Though I may not post much, I'll be around often enough, mostly to see how the mods are coming along and how everyone is doing.

Oh, and for useless info about myself, I'm from Tennessee  :P

Well, I guess this means it's my turn.

I'm Bev (well, duh) and I live in Misery...er Missouri.  I'm old enough not only to remember when computers took up an entire room, but also a time when there were no computers. *gasp*

I like playing games and it was my oldest daughter that got me started on computer rpgs.  I'm a big fan of the Wizardry series as well as BG.

My hobbies are counted cross stitch and just about any other craft.  We have 2 dogs and 1 daughter (we have 3 daughters) currently living at home.

I am now involved in the creation of Keli - one of the Tiefling Sisters (shameless plug coming:  see link below).

My mom's really good at needlepoint. I get bored too easily :). I had an Intellivision when I was, like, 7 - I don't know how old that makes me comparatively though. (27) My real name's Emily, and I'm in Florida for now.
